    Abstract

    :

    Gait analysis is used in clinical evaluation of musculoskeletal system, design and assessment of prosthesis (especially for lower limbs), in the process of rehabilitation after injury and in biometrics. This paper reviews the general methodologies involved in kinematic gait analysis right from acquisition of data to processing and interpretation of meaningful results. The major components of kinematic gait analysis are: acquisition of data by cameras or instruments like accelerometer, electrogoniometer followed by processing and examination, measurement of general gait parameters, and electromyography (EMG).
